The X8 is pretty much a redundant model, cause I believe that the X10/Mini/Pro had already covered each segment.
SE could have just plan how will they going to top the X10. Like putting a 3'7 inch Amoled display(I believe this is the ideal size), 1.2/1.3 Ghz processor, has multi-touch, powerful LED flash (if Xenon cannot really be implemented) and not just photolight. Having it on Eclair at launch is okay.
I think SE can do all these things if they really want to.
I heard from sony sales manager that X8 has got color screen ? But i wont believe unless i use it.
They told me last time that X10 is color phone but when i gone to purchase store person told me it is black/white phone with black/white camera.
so guys have u any idea about camera features of x8 ?
Also i found that it comes with massive 2 MB of internal memory..?
wow 2MB i will download lots of music and video in to phone..!!!

Guys although this might seem a low end phone..it has a powerful processor on board @600 Mhz which is better than Nokia n97, N97 mini, 5800 xpress music, to be launched c6 and already available NOKIA x6..all these nokia phones have a 434 MHz processor..Understand the thing..all these phones are TOUCH Screens.TOUCH screens require a faster processor as compared to their keyboard or keypad counter parts for a better touch expreience AND PERFORMANCE..wITH A 3 mp SNAPPER I DON THINK IT WILL BE PRICED ABOVE Rs. 14,000
REGD.. OS..it will be available with Anderiod 2.1 after it is launched...The catch would be a much better TOUCH USER experience than any of the above mentioned nokia phones...Symbian is history in the age of Anderiod ..
I agree with Cyborg and mobile reviewer.The 'no flash' is Absolutely dissappointing!And the andriod version?!!Its just pathetic and plain disappointing
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2010it might come out with 2.1 and anyway this is low end smartphonealso its price is below 200 euros thats why its low end
i dont really get why on earth sony would put on such low features on this phone like a 3.2 megapixel camera without flash ( whats the use) and an OS that even other phone manufacturer have left behind this phone was supposed to be as thin as the xperia x10 as a factor of acceptance but its FAT THICK and no flash why on earth would anyone give a waste of money on this phone.
i m using SE from past 4 to 5 years.. x8 has good design n great calm n cool looks.. but i want to ask SE guys .. y the heck no flash .. n seriously i dont think a 5mp would have made tht much of big differnece in price.. 3mp for se yendo would be have been better .. well it could be understood that OS upgrade will b there later on.. but better cam n a flash was suppose to b there..
PS: Please also work on some new media players.. after walkman everything is like dead.. try n include more file support like xvid divx n all...
This is not a complaint to SE but more like something i desire from u people... Still love the phones u guys make .. keep up the good work... cheers :D
im interested to this se xperia, but i want to know if its really worth buying for?
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2010wow... impressive for SE X6, it looks nice but why android 1.6? not 2.1 eclair, 1.6 outdated..... morex8 will be out in august and will get android 2.1 1 month later like x10 family
so dont worry about OS
about camera i am agree with you but the price of this phone will be about 200-250 euro at launce time so this phone is excellent for money you pay for it
i think x9 will have better camera
wow... impressive for SE X6, it looks nice but why android 1.6? not 2.1 eclair, 1.6 outdated.. but everything just nice..
too bad GPS isnt free navigation like nokia did and camera still using 3.15MP while other vendors moving to 5M..
I always was an SE fanboy since the T68 but I am now very proud to be a Nexus 1 owner...why?
Because SE is not making interesting phones anymore, they are making the same design and specs over and over again,the same mistakes over and over again!!
instead of doing low specs or too high specs with very bad management of the OS/hardware they should release real flagships like a 3.7'' Super Amoled screen,thin,8mp,xenon or strong flash,Android 2.2 or more...
